Yesterday I filmed an interview and copy/pasted the files from my SD card onto my iMac, then imported the files into Premiere Pro to view the footage. Everything looked good, so I ejected the card and formatted it for another shoot. The files and Premiere Pro project were fine. I imported my next project, no problem.
However today when I opened the first project to begin my edit, I found that all of my files and the folder they were saved in had disappeared:
The "Rushes" folder and its content no longer exits, and was instead left with an empty "untitled folder".
I've searched finder, trash, everywhere for the "Rushes" folder and "MVI_0538.MOV" onward (up to 0570).
If it weren't for the Premiere Pro file path it seems that there would be no evidence of the files ever existing – is there any way of recovering them or finding any trace of them? Perhaps by using the terminal?
